Kelly Says:


Every doc I've met with here in Pittsburgh Pa will only take cash if they prescribe you xanax.. Very unethical but since I have insurance I would like to find a doctor to prescribe me the meds I need. I would take either although I like the Klonopin better, xanax cause my depression to worsen after I take them... Anyone know of any Psychiatrists that will take my insurance and prescribe me meds?

The state medical insurance has very strict regulations regarding why a doctor may prescribe controlled substances, such as Xanax or Klonopin, which are Benzodiazepines.

Thus, the doctor's have to go through a lot of paperwork and can get in a lot of trouble, if the state feels that something is out of line.

Learn more Benzodiazepine details here.

There is nothing that mandates that they have to accept any particular medical insurance, or any for that matter.

Additionally, on top of the strict regulations, PA Medicaid is well known for not paying the doctors very much, at all, for the services they provide, so most don't want to bother with it.

To throw another wrench in the works, you may be creating a lot of issues yourself, if you're calling them to ask if they'll specifically prescribe these medications, because most doctors will see that as being drug seeking behavior.

Do you actually have documentation in your medical records that these medications have worked for you?

Facilitation for sales of a controlled Drug must be a Felony? I'm not sure the doctor would appreciate the word of mouth thing posted worldwide on the internet? Groups like the DEA or FBI do read these sites.

DANNY OSSELBORN is a disgruntled former patient of Dr. Maurice Cerul. He is writing false information about Dr. Cerul. Dr. Cerul will only dispense appropriate medical prescriptions to legitimate patients. Please do post any more false information regarding Dr. Maurice Cerul. {editor's note: this post is in response to another message which has been taken down}

I am a Dr. & I'd like to thank "Grateful Patient" for saying what I have been rallying against. People come on these sites disgruntled write whatever they want & don't realize or are maliciously messing with PROFESSIONALS LIVES.

I've been prescribed xanax for over thirteen years. I also go to a methadone clinic. I recently had a falling out with my psychiatrist and she ripped me off of my xanax!!! I cannot find a doctor that is methadone friendly, takes my insurance, and will prescribe me xanax that I must have for my severe panic disorder and high anxiety. I can't stand being treated like I'm a "drug seeker", but I know what I need after this long...from process of elimination as a teenager. Please help! I live in mercer county,I have amerihealth/mercy... insurance through the state. I can't go tthrough this pain for another second. But even my pcp says they called everyone they could think of and they've given up, hands are tied!!! What's going on!? I feel like I'm in the twilight zone here!!! Please please please help me:'(

Thats absolutely horrible, it disgusts me. I've been prescribed the same medication for over thirteen years, xanax is one of them.and bc some idiot in my town doesn't care for me, she decided to call my doc and tell doc lies about me being an alcoholic just bc she saw me at a restaurant with my family having an alcoholic beverage!!! She ruined my live bc I was taken off of my much needed medication! Bc of people like that I am now sitting here withdrawaling, with the worst anxiety I've ever experienced, just watching my life fall apart before my eyes.

In mt Lebo there's a great dr that will prescribe u xanax or joins as long as u have no substance abuse history and he takes most insurance. but if u have upmc u will have to make him ur pcp and if u want to abuse them and take bars 3 times a day don't bother going. the practice is called medihelp and u want to go to dr j or his son and if u think u can get away with being on substance abuse drugs ur mistaken. they do blood diagnostics before and wait a month to prescribe u them they are very serious and by the book

Sick of liars Says:

Dr. Cerul only see's people with legitimate documentation and all their mental health records. You also need a referral. So people need to quit making things up about him! Just because you are drug seekers and Dr. Cerul wouldn't write you what you wanted you make up lies. I agree with Grateful Patient, please stop spreading false information.

Doesnt Matter Says:

If you have legitimate documentation and psychiatric evaluations and diagnoses than you should be able to get your medication. Clearly the people posting on here are drug addicts and drug seeking. And false information is given out, and angry patients are making things up about doctors.

Chris Says:

YA U JUST CAN'T GO IN AND SAY I HAVE ANXIETY GIVE ME BARS OR PINS. NOW ITS THE HARDEST TIME EVER TO GET DOCTORS TO PRESCRIBE BENZO'S. SO MANY PEOPLE AR DYING BECAUSE THEY ARE MIXING THEM WITH ILLICIT DRUGS OR ANY OPIATE AND THEY ARE OVERDOSING. LOOK UP THE NUMBER ONE DRUG PEOPLE OVERDOSE ON. BENZODIAZEPINES ARE #1 HAVE HAD SO MANY FRIENDS OVERDOSE ON XANAX. I DONT HAVE ENOUGH FINGERS AND TOES TO COUNT CLOSE FRIENDS WHO DIED ON THEM. "Please be careful if ur gonna mess with this drug" IF U HAVE NEVER TAKEN THEM I BEG U PLEASE DONT DO IT. I ALMOST DIED GOING THRU WITHDRAWAL. ONLY 2 DRUGS CAN KILL U FROM WITHDRAWAL ALCOHOL AND XANAX/PINS. GOD BLESS

You're no physician. You wouldn't have scored a 2 in the MCAT verbal reasoning section. Everybody on the internet is a doctor. Hint, we generally use the term physician to refer to ourselves and our colleagues. Doctor is a very broad term. ie.) Dr. Phill

Don't take other drugs with xanax or klonopin together and u will not overdose...I have had countless friends & people I knew overdose from this lethal mixture. Also I have many friends who have multiple years clean with the help of certain benzodiazapines & anti-depressants when taken as prescribed. Everyone has an opinion. Talk to a psychiatrist or Doctor (MD) who specializes in addiction.

If you really are a good doctor as you say, and you're agreeing with "greatful patient" then why are discussing the happenings between yourself and clients?? HIPPA, anyone?? As a so called "professional" you should be taking the high road but, I have reason to believe through my own occupation that just like your address the situation is shady. For those of you that are users and abusers get it together, and for those of you who need the help and advice of a professional I'm sorry that you suffer through the actions of others.

If ur close to Wexford try a Dr off the rt. 910 off I 79. They're a group of DR'S who take ur ins. West penn psychiatry group. I'll give you another one Stauton clinic in Sewickley 15 mile North of Pittsburgh. They're 1/2 mile past Sewickley Bridge on 65/ (next) to Burger King. I'm sure there's a dr who would help you there. They might have changed the name to Primary Health Network. Good Luck

Cayuga Says:

If you need pain relief or anxiety relief do not use UPMC General internal medicine at Montiefieore hospital. They don't care about your pain or anxiety. They will tell you to take Tylenol. No joke. I was in severe back pain, and on xeralto so I can't use Motrin, Advil, etc.(bleeding risk). The pain was so bad I had to go to the ER for pain meds. They just don't get it or worse they don't care.
